A podiatrist/chiropodist is a regulated health care professional that specializes in any issues relating to the feet, ankles, and parts of the leg that connect to the ankle. Gout, arthritis, and flat feet are just a few issues that require the services of a podiatrist.
If you need a podiatrist in Whitby, Mississauga, or Brantford, contact Barry Noble, Mark Bradley and Marilyn Bradley of The Podiatry Associates. They treat medical conditions related to the foot and prescribe orthotics if necessary.
You should see a podiatrist for orthotics if you experience the following problems:
- Foot pain
- Pain in the arch or heel
- Flat feet
- Foot deformities
Why Custom Made?
When you experience foot pain, you may be tempted to go to your local retail store and buy foot inserts. The problem with over-the-counter foot inserts is that they are designed to fit the majority of feet, not your specific needs. In time, over-the-counter inserts will lose their cushion and support and offer little or no functional control. On the other hand, if you visit our Mississauga office, your podiatrist/chiropodist can custom make orthotics for your unique foot issues. By using impressions, casts, or scans, we can create the best possible appliances for your foot.
Prescription orthotics correct the alignment of your feet and ankles, as well as prevent or treat abnormal movement or rolling of the feet. They also reduce pain, calluses, and discomfort by redistributing the pressure on the bottom of the foot.
